Hillswoods involvement with Welsh Ponies began in 1982 after purchasing the Section A Stallion Twilight Pinnacle and two mares. At the Victorian All Welsh in 1996 our attention focussed on the Cobs. We were impressed by their size, movement and wonderful temperament. The decision was made to purchase one and this led us to the late Sue Walsh's Acheron Stud. Two mares were purchased and they became the foundation of our stud.
Hillswood is situated 18kms north of Warragul in the rolling fertile hills of West Gippsland. Our mares and foals are raised naturally producing strong well grown young stock. We only use the best bloodlines focusing on quality, type and temperament.
The cob's strong constitution, hardiness and agility have made them most suitable for dressage, harness, jumping and showing. It is this versatility that we strive to perpetuate.
